Boulder Pridefest 2019

I’ve been an ally of LGBTQ Rights for several decades. Part of the Pride Celebration is to participate in the Visibility Marches. To give open support to the LGBTQ Community and to Celebrate the day of Inclusion, Visibility, and to Honor other Human Beings. This year, in Boulder, was the biggest Visibility March yet! I marched proudly with my entire family. Below are some of the highlights from the Boulder Pridefest. 

15th Annual Out Boulder County Garden Party

Here are some of the highlights from the 15th Annual Out Boulder County Garden Party. Every year, Out Boulder County honors three outstanding members of our community with the Clela Rorex Allies in Action Award, Jack and Jean Hodges Big Hearts Award, and the Ignite and Inspire Youth Leadership Award. 

Rainbows Over Pearl

In celebration of Pride Month, Boulder’s popular Pearl Street Mall proudly displayed rainbow flags in local shops. Three Pearl Street crosswalks were painted with rainbow colors. I had the opportunity to go with my daughters, use the painted crosswalks, listen to the different speakers as they raised the first pride flag next to the state and federal flags. 

“The rainbow has become a symbol of universal love and equality for all, as well as the hard-fought struggles that have occurred in the LGBTQ+ movement over decades. We are delighted to be a part of this effort to showcase Boulder’s pride,” said Mardi Moore, executive director of Out Boulder. “The partners who are working with us to make this happen are amazing. It is truly a community effort.”
